Microsoft Project Training

What is Microsoft Project?

Microsoft Project is a project management software program, developed and sold by Microsoft, which is designed to assist in developing a plan for completing a project, assigning resources to tasks, tracking progress, managing the budget, and analyzing workloads.

Microsoft Project was the company’s third Microsoft Windows-based application, and within a couple of years of its introduction it became the dominant PC-based project management software.

While part of the Microsoft Office family, it has never been included in any of the Office suites. It is available currently in two editions, Standard and Professional. Microsoft Project’s proprietary file format is .mpp.
